    sounds like metal hitting, a clicking?

    No not really. It's just a loud like crackly sound. Almost Sounds like plastic slapping.. But I don't see any spots that seem to have the seal cracked or anything

    Tap on the edge of the cone/ dustcap. Are there any areas that sound different? I've had 2 w7's dustcaps come loose. Makes an awful plastic smacking rattle.
